Intelligent Infrastructure: Designing Smart Buildings for NYC44 Charlton Street, New York, NY 10014
START: 7:00 PM June 6, 2012
END: 9:00 PM June 6, 2012
With New York City’s building stock eating up $15 billion in yearly energy costs and accounting for 75 percent of the City’s total greenhouse gas emissions, a sweeping effort is underway to make NYC’s buildings more efficient. Advances in information technology, architectural design, and energy management are converging to create smart buildings that allow for greater efficiency, control and comfort. But what combination of technology and design makes a building “smart”?
For our next event, we call on two beacons of the industry to hear their views on the future of analytics in the building space. Ariella Maron, the Deputy Commissioner for Energy of New York City, has helped revamp NYC’s commitment to sustainability as a key figure in the development and implementation of PlaNYC. Constantine Kontacosta paved the way for interdisciplinary research of applied research and technology in the real estate and construction industries as the founding director of the NYU Schack Institute’s Center for the Built Environment.
Join us on June 6th as we host a special one-on-one conversation between these heavyweights as they discuss the technology, design and investments in smart buildings that are reshaping the cleantech landscape in NYC.

Urban farming has been gaining popularity these days in NYC, but a Brooklyn-based company is taking the verdant practice to new heights--literally. Hidden away on a Johnson Avenue warehouse rooftop between Bushwick and East Williamsburg, Edenworks's custom-designed aquaponic growing system (a.k.a. Farmlab) is able to grow lush greens in a compact, 800-square-foot space. In stark contrast to the concrete jungle found outside, the indoor roof space is filled with a lush garden installed atop a tiered structure that features tanks full of tilapia fish.

As much as we love writing about treehouses in rural areas, the fact that there's such a dearth of them in the big city is a bit disappointing. That's why we were so delighted to come upon this Fort Greene townhouse that fulfills our urban treehouse desires with an oasis-like backyard and roomy wooden perch amidst the leaves.
